How do I reassign edit rights to a page with edit restrictions, created by a now unlicensed user? Edited

We have a page in our confluence library that was created by a previous employee who restricted editing to only her.  Everyone else is "view only" permissions.  The previous team is now unlicensed and the account no longer exists in our Atlassian ecosystem.  See below for wording on permissions.

Is there a workaround to reassign permissions to someone else?


Page restrictions:
Only PREVIOUS TEAM MEMBER can edit this page. (set by PREVIOUS TEAM MEMBER at Mar 29, 2018 12:36)

Hi Anna ,

Users with 'Admin' permissions in the respective space, or users with the System Administrator global permission can remove restrictions from that page.
So I would recommend reaching out to those for your instance.

Thanks for your response, Gopal! I am a super admin and it doesn't seem to give me that option. Do you know how I would do that?

Go to  Space Administration/ Space tools > Permissions > Restricted Pages.

There you could find the referenced page and in front of the same should be a little padlock to "remove restrictions"

hope that helps !
